For this non-sport loving person, this tour was a complete surprise and a wonderful way to see one of Melbourne's icons. We opted for an MCG only tour ($20 per adult) and spent close to two hours in a small group led by an MCG member. The tour gives you the chance to see the real MCG - minus 97'000... More

A great place to watch an AFL game. Easy to walk to if you stay in the city. Take a raincoat if you are seated at ground level.

If your a sporting nut a tour of the bowels of the MCG is a must. Press box, change rooms, coaches box, library etc etc. Takes abouy an hour and your guide has been a member of the MCG for many a decade.

Spent a cold wet afternoon at the MCG Sports Museum. There's something here for everyone, even those who are not huge sports fans, as there are so many exhibits that reflect the history of Australia. Particularly enjoyed the hologram of Shane Warne - it's tucked away down the back so it's easy to miss, but make sure you search it... More

we booked into the MCG tour and absolutely loved it! It is a must, we got to see the change rooms for the AFL players and cricketers, walk onto the MCG ground and tour through the members section, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we later found that all of the tour guides have 12 months training and are...

Great atmosphere at the Liverpool game in 2013, so much space and a good view from everywhere in the stadium, although the price of the food is ridiculous, $20 for fish chips and a drink.

I thought the Sports Museum was really worth the visit. Allow plenty of time if you a sports fan. We did not allow enough time to view the interactive area. I loved the historical sporting uniforms and attire.
